Gasping for air.

August 16, 2010 § 2 Comments

Feeling choked for two big reasons:
First,  TOO HOT.
Second,  joblessness.

I hate this feeling.
It’s an in-between feeling, you know?

Mr. Super-Optimism,
Please come and save me. I’m nearly drowning in this mess.
Sincerely,
The Pessimist

Challenge.

I always set small goals for myself and then forget it the very next day and say, “ah forget it.”
Maybe if I make a list this time then I won’t forget it and will actually follow through with it.
And maybe if I share it on web with friends and strangers, then maybe I’ll stick to it even better! 🙂

  • Don’t race against the sun.
    Sleep before the sun actually rises (Ideal sleep time: midnight)
    Race with the sun instead.  Wake up around the time Mr. Sun rises (Ideal wake-up time: seven)
  • Eat three meals a day.
    Even if hunger is not present, eat a meal at an appropriate meal time.
  • Keep a journal.
    At the end of each day, recap.  Reflect, and move on from all of the ugly feelings from that day.
  • Keep the gumline happy.
    Floss everyday.  Do NOT skip.  Do NOT.
  • Live up to own namesake.
    SeoEuy literally means to be greatly giving.
    Find an opportunity to give.  How about volunteering once a week?  Share with the ones in need with what I have to offer.
  • Don’t seek for a perfection.
    Perfection comes with a disappointment.  Learn to love the imperfections.

My goal is to keep these promises to myself for a long time.

Lactaid and Blueberry Buttermlk Pancake

August 6, 2010 § Leave a comment

Blueberry Buttermilk Pancake:
1/2C Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 Tbs Organic Cane Sugar
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
Pinch of Sea Salt
1/2 C Buttermilk
1/4 C Milk
1 Egg
Lots and lots and lots and LOTTTSSSSS of blueberries.

The exact ingredients that went into making my Friday brunch at home.
Fried to perfection in a pond of butter, these mini pancake babies were rather perfect I must say!
It was super light and fluffy and sweet with a little bit of honey drizzled all over it.
ahhhhhhhhhhhhh.
Ever since my body became a little sensitive to dairy products I had to substitute them out with non-dairy things… like soymilk. And I’m usually fine with it, I’m not a huge dairy cheesy loving creature anyway.
But there are days, where I just crave dairy products.
I mean like, CRAVE crave.
I’d want a slice of three-cheese pizza with more cheese sprinkled on it; I’d want a strawberry milkshake with a three inch whipped cream; or I just want to gulp down a one giant glass of whole milk!
The funny part is that I used to hate cheese pizza (it always had to have a topping), didn’t care much for milkshakes and the whipped cream, and my mom had to beg me to drink a sip of milk.
But no.
Now I just love them. oOo just thought of a cheesy dish of mac and cheese, yummmmmm
Thankfully we live in the science era!
Where geeky (but cool) scientists made a pill packed full of lactase enzymes to break down the good ol’ lactose!
It’s kinda magical.
So yes, long story short, when I do indulge in dairy products I tend to go all out.
I mean did you see the ingredients?? Buttermilk, milk, and butter?! Oh gosh I loved every single bite of those lil pancakes.
For some reason though, the lactaid doesn’t quite work well with just a cold cup of milk. So I’ve been avoiding it for a while now, but I think I might try one of those lactose-free milk thingies sometime…

My friend, Lactaid. :DDD

Where Am I?
